My meal was underwhelming. I ordered the tofu/veg stir fry without mushrooms. Was served to me with mushrooms and also the tofu had some kind of moist breading on it. Very odd and not very good. Since my dish came with mushrooms which I do not eat, I took the opportunity to ask for the tofu without the breading. This... More

They have changed their menu again and the 3x I have been there recently, everything has been good. The food is good, the service is good and the place is loud! I had the chicken pasta and it was wonderful and a large portion.

This is a great place for a meal before Muvico. Food is fresh with a menu to please everyone, along with reasonable pricing. The waitstaff is so very responsive and helpful and friendly.

Lazy dog cafe is ok. It trumps the other crappy choices available at the Thousand Oaks mall. On par with Cheesecake Factory. The calamari and Hummas plates are good.

We went for lunch to the Lazy Dog Cafe outside the Oaks Mall. It was a cool day (low 60s) but the sun was shining, so we sat out on the patio. I didn't have our dogs with us on this trip but there were several diners who did have their dogs with us on the patio. All were well... More

We had not been to this establishment before. Friends tipped us off. We tried it. We are glad we did. We have gone back several time since. Each time was very good.

I've been here before with my sister and her dog. At that visit, outdoor patio available only for dogs, and it was crowded. Not much food options for the dog. I was here this month for a work lunch party, and sat inside this time where there is lots is space. Seems that hamburgers are the specialty, other dishes are... More
